In particular it begins with $$and ends with$$.

Your post has a huge number of typos: using \ instead of /, having \ before [ instead of after, writing mat instead of math, etc. It is not surprising that with such number of typos something does not work. I suggest you copy-paste the code from the tutorial instead of re-typing it. If you still have an example in the tutorial that does not work, please post a link to that example. Plato showed the exact code to produce a LaTeX formula.

In reply #2, I wrote$$x^2\sqrt{x}$$ gives $x^2\sqrt{x}$

You must use the TeX wrap
